Created in 1835, the Art & History Museum is located in the heart of Brussels in the Cinquantenaire Park. The Art & History Museum is Belgium’s largest museum institution. Its permanent collections of decorative arts relate to Prehistory, Antiquity and all periods of European history, from the Gallo-Roman period to the twentieth century (Art Nouveau). Non-European civilizations are also represented such as pre-Columbian America, Asia, Oceania, and the Islamic world.
